Backcountry Trail maintenance at Olympic National Forest – Wynoochee Lakeshore
This is a chance to give back to the trails you love and enjoy in teh pacific Northwest. This trail is a beautiful loop around a seldom visitee lake. This trail needs some help!!!
Head to the southern Olympics and assist the Olympia Branch Trail Crew with maintenance of the Wynoochee Lake Shore Trail – a 16-mile loop trail skirts the Wynoochee Lake and travels two miles up the Wynoochee River, affording views of waterfalls and ancient forests. This is a beautiful trail was adopted by the Olympia Branch at the request of the US Forest Service to help keep the trail as a multi-use trail in the southern portion of the Forest. Work will include trail clearing, removing fallen trees, brushing and some tread repair to areas damaged by erosion. Backcountry trail maintenance requires your 10 essentials, water, lunch, work boots (hiking boots are great) and work gloves (leather or other durable material). Bring what you have, we'll make sure you have what you need.
Meet at Mud Bay Park & Ride off State Route 101 at 7:45 a.m. Carpool to Wynoochee Lake. The Branch can supply most hand tools for brushing, log-outs (deadfall removal) and tread repair. To help, you can bring your tools for working in and on the trail surface. Return around 5:30 p.m.
